The Canon EOS 400D, a highly recommended camera, is an entry level-priced DSLR with professional level image quality and capabilities. This time Canon lives up to its standard with its Digital Rebel XTi. This Canon EOS 400D is easy enough for a beginner to use and at the same time, its good enough to be used by professional photographers. The Canon EOS 400D like its predecessor sports a bigger screen and Picture Styles, but still keeps the same sensor as its predecessor. There are also a higher resolution sensor and a new active dust removal system. A certain reviewer was genuinely happy that he could take pictures with this camera without having to make his young kids stay still to strike a pose. The same is expressed by another user. Coming back to this Canon, the Canon EOS 400D is a bit compact and lightweight by weighting approximately 4 ounces more than its 17.1-ounce predecessor, unusually fast and responsive, much more intelligently designed with shooting-friendly layout. Known to be well-balanced, thanks to its small, exceptionally light kit lens that are attached to the larger and heavier 16mm-to-35mm (25.6mm-to-56mm equivalent) lens. The huge main LCD can be used as a read-in of the methods of monitoring the settings. Features that are displayed there on the LCD cannot be seen in the viewfinder. Features like the ISO speed, white balance, battery level, and other useful settings. According to CNET, most amateurs will find all the essentials: a handful of manual, semimanual, and automatic exposure modes; user-selectable nine-point autofocus, and AI Servo autofocus for moving subjects; and simultaneous raw-plus-JPEG capture. The only known lacking feature in this camera is the spot meter as it supplies only evaluative, center-weighted average, and partial center-weighted metering. Aside from that, it is a great camera to be used.
